A virtual mini-museum of the halcyon days of the Canadian pencil industry.
S-Marque Inc. (which I believe later became Basics Office Products) sold Canadian made pencils. These pencils were manufactured by Dixon Ticonderoga Inc. for S-Marque probably in the mid-1980s. They were one of several companies that Dixon manufactured "Stripe Design" pencils for. These stripe design pencils had a band of yellow about the ferrule at the end of a pencil. Actually, the ferrule pictured on the box looks just like a Ticonderoga ferrule.
Below is a pencil lightly labeled "Made in Canada" from Zellers, a defunct Canadian discount retailer. The ferrule with the yellow strip is identical to the S-Marque pencil above. This is likely another "stripe design" pencil that was made by Dixon.
